Program Description

Event Details

Join us as we discuss books pertaining to LGBTQ+ experiences! All identities are welcome. 

This month's book will be The Magic Fish by Trung Le Nguyen.

Book summary: "Real life isn't a fairytale. But Tié̂n still enjoys reading his favorite stories with his parents from the books he borrows from the local library. It's hard enough trying to communicate with your parents as a kid, but for Tié̂n, he doesn't even have the right words because his parents are struggling with their English. Is there a Vietnamese word for what he's going through? Is there a way to tell them he's gay?"
